OMVC Expands Support for Mobile DTV Tests
The Open Mobile Video Coalition (OMVC) announced it is expanding its support of the Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) mobile/handheld (M/H) standard-setting process. The proposed support includes corroborative testing of the M/H physical layer; independent verification of the candidate standard; complete system validation; and on-air facility and interoperability testing.

Anne Schelle, OMVC executive director said, “This is a natural follow-on to the successful IDOV [Independent Determination Of Viability] work. This moves beyond testing of the baseline physical layer to embrace end-to-end tests. Comprehensive test and evaluation is vital to maintaining our strong support from broadcasters and affiliated industry stakeholders.”

Brandon Burgess, OMVC president, explained, “Expanding our support for the ATSC’s important work is a reaffirmation of broadcasters’ deep and unwavering commitment to fielding outstanding mobile digital television services to consumers. We will work together swiftly and steadily to accelerate industry adoption of the ATSC M/H Standard and realize this untapped opportunity nationwide.”
